Brunetti Women’s Coffee Club Ride
Come for the ride, stay for the coffee
Saturday 18 October 2008.
Women of all ages and abilities enjoyed a great day at the Brunetti Women's Coffee
Club Ride. Sixty women arrived to start the morning with a Brunetti coffee before
a ride briefing from Warren (Bike Now). Everyone then broke into small groups to
start the ride with their Ride Angel. Weather conditions were warm and windy, which
provided a great challenge as people cycled from Carlton to Kew Boulevard and back.
People had the opportunity to learn about different obstacles including traffic,
tram tracks, corners...and a blown tyre!
By lunchtime, the clouds had disappeared and everyone returned to the Women's Hub
for a tasty Brunetti lunch (and more coffee...who could resist!). The shade of the
umbrellas was the perfect place to watch the action of the Jayco Herald Sun Tour.
Early racers were flying past as Rob (RideWiser) gave an informative talk about
racing and fitness. Two lucky women won prizes in the raffle (a Brunetti cycling
kit and a $400 voucher from Richmond Cyclery) and at 2pm all attention turned to
the women racing in the Amy Gillett Cup.
A special thanks must go to our Ride Angels who all volunteered their time. The
Angels were there to make sure that everyone found their way around the course,
but they also shared safety tips, info about bikes and, most importantly, their
passion for cycling.
For everyone who attended, don't forget to look at all the great material in your
showbag. Plenty of upcoming rides and events, including a voucher for a FREE
training class with the Ridewiser ERGO program.
